What would happen if today was ya last
would ya wake up early, get blazed in the park
would ya get off ya face in a bar
would ya make love sniffin cocaine in a spa
would ya say sorry for mistakes in ya past
would ya forgive her for breakin ya heart
would ya get what ya came to ask
before ya gone
write a letter or record a song
would ya scuba dive, sky dive, hire a ferrari
penthouse party, set fire to ya money
would ya rob a bank, house the homeless
donate ya organs to lousy smokers
would ya focus on ya close fam
cook up a feast of crayfish and spit roast lamb
would ya go back home, walk the streets, score some E's
get off ya guts and talk to police
would ya dance to ya favourite track
if it was played full blast on a train that's packed
would ya hijack a plane, and crash it into parliament
for the freedom to protest and argument
would ya wish ya could rewind, and start again
stop playin' the harlequin.

wake up tommorow morning
see the sun shine bright
wake up tommorow morning
see the sun shine bright

Would ya surf the crowd at a James Brown concert
sing all the words and drink till ya vomit
would ya wanna meet, the Queen or Dalai Lama
would ya wanna meet, George Bush or Osama
would ya wanna meet, Ja Rule or Bambaata
it's what ya done, not where ya rap or from brother
are ya chained to a desk, are ya breakin ya heart
are ya diggin' a trench in the rain and the mud
I got somethin' that I came to ask, what would happen if today was ya last
Are ya sittin' on a bench, are ya makin ya mark
afraid of the future and ashamed of the past
I got somethin' that I came to ask,
what would happen if today was ya last?

wake up tommorow morning
see the sun shine bright
wake up tommorow morning
see the sun shine bright

Would ya try a threesome, in the back of a Commodore,
with a box of Cadbury's Chocolate body sauce
would ya want it all, tour the Greek Islands
safari through the Congo to see lions
would ya know the mystery of the amazon
would ya know the history of the land ya on
would ya know the industry's a paragon
for slimy motherfuckers like Alan Bond
would ya save earth, or finish a day's work
it's too late, ya spirit's a caged bird
would ya make it worth ya while, go tonight
take a bus and steal a postie's motorbike
would ya globalize and let everybody know
we're all victims of economic growth
would ya make amends, savour every second
take revenge on ya boss with a heavy weapon
would ya let 'em know ya darkest secret,
reveal all in ya partner's grievin'
would ya escape from a divvy van
fuck like ya bein' taped, on minicam
What would happen if today was ya last?
That's what I came to ask.

wake up tommorow morning
see the sun shine bright
wake up tommorow morning
see the sun shine bright
